    I heard from a communication expert the other day some good things that employers look for when hiring. Here they are:

    1. Clarify Interviewers Goals.
    Do some research before you go into the interview on the firms goals and mission statement. Nothing is as impressive as someone who is interested enough in the job to do their homework.

    2. Come prepared.
    Don't just wake up throw some clothes on and expect to get a job. Come prepared mentally as well as visually.

    3. Good first impressions.
    Make sure you leave a good first impression. Shake hands firmly, look them in the eye, be confident but not cocky.

    4. Give clear answers.
    Make sure when you are asked a question that you give clear concise answers. Don't be lazy in your talk.

    5. Follow interviewers lead.
    Don't rule the conversation even if you think you have some impressive stuff to say. If you let the interviewer lead and you follow their lead they will like you even more.

    6. Ask questions.
    Believe it or not when an interviewer asks if you have any questions at the end of the interview, they want you to have some. Ask about the company, the mission statement, etc.

    7. Send a thank you letter.
    Regardless of if you get hired or not send a thank you letter it will go a long way and could open some doors in the future.

    JennyO,

    Did you just post to the wrong forum? Were you thinking that you were posting to CareerBuilder.com or perhaps to Monster.com?

    This is a work at home forum. Apparently you haven't taken the time to look around to figure that tough one out. I suppose that to some, the logo and the URL aren't enough of a clue.

    A big part of the point of working from home is so that we don't have to go through that kind of annoying and degrading nonsense.

    Would you please be a little more careful?

    Thanx,

    ~Newbie Shield~

    I agree NS I hate all that nonsense myself. Your comment made me laugh out loud and I'm still laughing as I type this. You are correct this is the Work at Home Forum and thank God for it.
